Obituary

Walter T. Doyle, 95, of North Bellmore died Sunday after a long lived, very full life of family, love and happiness. Born in Brooklyn, NY – a child of the depression, Walter learned to appreciate the little things of life – most of which revolved around his immediate family. As one of five kids, he quickly learned the value of the dollar and the importance of hard work. Following in the footsteps of his older brother Raymond, Walter joined the Navy after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He went off to war – leaving behind many young ladies in the borough of Brooklyn missing their favorite dance partner. Walter shipped off and served in the Navy for three years, where he spent the entire time abroad traveling to the opposite ends of the earth, serving his country and witnessing casualties of war including the loss of his older brother Raymond. As he returned to civilian life - he was the jack of all trades doing everything from being a lifeguard, school teacher, track coach, basketball coach, handyman and ultimately becoming a member of the FDNY (not necessarily in that order). Walter served in the FDNY for 22 years in various roles including service in the marine division. Walter is predeceased in death by his parents, Walter and Ida (nee Galbally), brothers Raymond Doyle, Robert Doyle, Francis Doyle and sister Muriel Smith. He has left behind many adoring nieces, nephews and “family” who weren’t literally family but were just as close. He is survived by his son W. John Doyle and wife Christine along with grandchildren Ronan and Kennedy. His grandchildren brought such immense happiness and love to his life for the last five years. With a smile as big as the moon, he will be sorely missed. For those who are feeling the loss of Walter from this world, it should bring comfort to reflect on the memories along with his chuckling laugh and huge grin.
